ALAN LIGHTMAN EINSTEIN DREAMS PDF

Nonetheless, he wrote much of his groundbreaking papers during this time and emerged as a leading scientist shortly thereafter. In the book, a fictional Einstein dreams of a new conception of time in every new chapter, sometimes incorporating the actual consequences of special relativity. But this book goes well beyond the scope of physics. Each new concept of time raises new questions in the realms of psychology, ethics, and metaphysics. Eventually the higher, slow-motion residents start snubbing their elevation-challenged peers, but some develop an insatiable compulsion to live at the highest point possible.
